On Main Street in our town stands a row of five houses, each painted a different color. They are owned by gentlemen of five different nationalities who care for five different types of pets, including a lizard, enjoy five different beverages, including vodka, and smoke four different tobacco products -- one of them is a non-smoker. From the clues below, we wonder: what beverage does the lizard owner drink, and in what color house does the vodka drinker live?

  1.     The Canadian lives in the pink house.
  2.     The German was bitten by his dog last week.
  3.     One sometimes smells coffee near the green house.
  4.     The Dane loves to drink tea.
  5.     The green house is next to the beige one - to the right.
  6.     The goldfish is owned by the non-smoker.
  7.     The guy in the yellow house smokes "Chesterfield".
  8.     In front of the middle house there are milk bottles every morning.
  9.     The Norwegian lives in the house on the right.
  10.     The lion keeper lives next to the "Kool" smoker,
  11.     while the "Chesterfield" smoker lives next to the horse owner.
  12.     The "Heart-Attack" smoker loves orange juice.
  13.     The Russian smokes cigars.
  14.     The blue house is next to the house of the Norwegian.

You're correct about the coffee smell.
